AN ORIGIN STORY: When I was young, my father told me about a stable where he worked when he was a teenager. He also entertained us sometimes by sketching one of the horses that he remembered from the stable. To me, hearing about the stable and watching him sketch his horse was like magic, and I asked him to "draw the horse" many, many times.

Fast forward a few years and, as a young man, I moved to Boston to attend Massachusetts College of Art & Design. And, yada-yada-yada, here you are, on my portfolio website.

I've always believed that the way my dad's horse made me feel as a kid played a big role in moving me toward this career that I continue to love. I still have one of his sketches...

I believe that creative disciplines nourish one another, that good ideas can come from a broad range of sources, and that design exists to connect your business to its audience. In each case, I work to craft thoughtful and relevant work that develops your story and helps create a dialog with that audience.
